Cayden Lapcevich to be honored by Canadian Hall

Will Be Presented Rising Star Award For 2017

2017-08-12_0365Stock car racer Cayden Lapcevich, the youngest national racing champion in Canadian history, has been named the Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame’s Rising Star Award winner for 2017. 

Lapcevich, of Grimsby, Ont., became the youngest ever NASCAR national champion when he took home the 2016 NASCAR Pinty’s Series Canadian stock car championship at the age of 16 years, 10 months and 16 days.

“I’d like to be able to say that young Cayden Lapcevich is a future champion in our sport, but he beat me to it,” said CMHF chairman Dr. Hugh Scully.

“The first driver to win a NASCAR Pinty’s Series championship and be the Josten’s Rookie of the Year in the same season is certainly a deserving recipient of the CMHF Rising Star Award. I get the feeling Cayden will likely be back in about 20 years or so to be inducted into the CHMF.”
